The whole Rooi-Els, Pringle Bay, Betty’s Bay and Kleinmond strip that we have access to here from Gordon’s Bay always makes for a delightful day outing. One such outing saw the girls and myself spend some time in Kleinmond, first grabbing a rather cheesy pizza from the local Pizza World, and then taking it with us over to where the Kleinmond Lagoon meets the Kleinmond beach.
If you have kids and haven’t visited this area before, then you are in for a treat.
With a large field of grass (strategically dotted with jungle gyms and swings), the kids who don’t like the beach have more than enough space to run around and play, while one short bridge away is the silky soft sands of the beach, perfect for those of us who would rather have some grains of sand between our toes.
Then there is of course the lagoon, which while not great for swimming (thanks to the polluted water), is perfect for a light spot of fishing and of course canoeing or supping (“Stand-Up Paddle Boarding” in case you aren’t familiar with the acronym), or whatever else it is that people do on lagoons.
Oh, and did I mention the never ending views?
In other words, it really is a perfect spot to spend a day with the family then.

Also, if you are really lucky, you might even spot the famous wild horses of Kleinmond while you are at it…
